The Period Project


The Period Project at NIU enhances awareness around the financial inaccessibility and burden that purchasing period products can cause individuals, specifically college students, while destigmatizing the way we talk about periods.

The GSRC accepts donations of unopened tampons and pads on an ongoing basis, during business hours. Products are placed in bathrooms of the cultural resource centers and select locations across campus.
